The Radio Museum: Ep. 1 – "It's All In Your Mind"

A man and his grandkids wander into an old museum, where the Curator delights in explaining the use of imagination that fueled the rise of Radio as home entertainment. Using a strange contraption to pull audio examples out of the ether, he helps the kids understand what made it possible to "see" programming without any pictures.

Covers: Stan Freberg, KDKA, Coon Sanders Nighthawks Orchestra, Billy Jones and Ernie Hare, The Happiness Boys, Amos n' Andy, Ed Wynn, sound effects, The Lone Ranger, sound effects men, I Love A Mystery.

The Radio Museum: Ep. 2 – "Variety: The Spice of Radio"

Mr. Hooper and the grandkids return for another visit. The Curator brings them forward in time to the era of the great variety shows, and the stars they introduced to home audiences via Radio, with the accent on comedy and character.

The Radio Museum : Ep. 3 – "High Adventure and Hard Sell"

The Curator leads Grandfather and the kids to a new exhibit...one which opens the way to far-flung adventure in a world of sound where anything was possible...the good guys always won...and kids could feel included in the action with secret decoders and shake-up mugs for just a boxtop or label, and 15 cents in coin.

Radio Museum: Ep. 4 – "I Say Holmes, Who Was That Masked Man?"

Crime paid very well for the sponsors of programs featuring a vast array of crime fighters. The Curator uses his Radio Machine to pull in segments from the Lone Ranger to Sherlock Holmes to hard-boiled detectives like Sam Spade.

Radio Museum: Ep. 5 - "Back To The Old Jokes At Home"

In an exhibit set up like a comfortable living room, the Curator guides Grandfather and the kids through shows that would now be known as "situation comedy"...where the laughs came from knowing the characters just as much as the funny things they said. (Just don't open that closet door!)

Radio Museum: Ep. 6 – "Time-Honored Classics and Other Dimensions and Things That Go Bump in the Night"

With a storm raging outside, the Curator leads the kids and their grandfather up to the old tower room, where the lights of the Radio Machine cast weird shadows...and the air is filled with sounds best heard with the lights out! From there, he transitions to an adaptation of a literary classic that threw the whole nation into panic, and introduces the work of Norman Corwin, who created for Radio a literature of its own. The series wraps up with adaptations of classic science fiction as the kids start planning a radio show collection of their own.
